Main Street Cafe in Alexandria near the Little J is a nice place to enjoy after a long day fishing.

Had a nice dinner with AcristicKid and Bruno there this spring after a great day of fishing.

Been there, good food. Not really a "fishing bar" and not really on a fishing stream (because Yellow Breeches is not a real trout stream . . . LOL . . . let the flame wars begin!).

Seriously though, this thread is kind of proving that there is not a lot of strong "fishing bars" in PA. I mean there are tons of great bars around the state near premier fishing destinations, but there is not a "wear your waders and let's talk fish" feeling like some of the Big D areas of NY. I mean there is the place you can get stabbed on the West Branch of the D that would welcome waders and fish tales.

# 1 - Elk Creek Cafe, brew pub
#2 - LYDIA's, the best bar in the Hancock area, filled with fly fisherman at the end of a day. And yes, it is in Pennsylvania.

I would second the Riverwalcks. I have wore my waders there many times to eat and drink but I would not say it's a "Fly Fishing Bar"

The Halton Hilton is definitely the biggest dive I've ever been in, and has to be seen to be believed.

But for nice places by good streams, it's hard to beat the Main St Cafe in Alexandria IMO

Other nice spots -
Deb's Place in cross Fork
Slate Run Hotel on pine creek
Millheim Hotel near penns creek
Bud Murphy's in connelsville by the yough
Avonia tavern near trout run on lake erie

JDaddy...........There is no way for me to put into words what i want to say ...............i'm speechless toward your statement about the Breeches........fadeaway.......thanks , for your support , Cold Springs is fer sure a wear your waders in no problem , decent bar food , AND you can fish one of the best streams in the east right there behind the place , which , if you head upstream , is one of the better stretches overall. oh JDaddy........you can catch a wil;d brown and get stabbed in the same spot in Carlisle . if that's what you want. lol i think this one is going to be fuuuuuuun.

I have to put in my .02 for my favorites up in the Potter area. I always enjoy stopping in at the Wharton after some let evening fishing. Their Wild Game Night is always treat in the winter.

While I am up there stopping in to the Lakeview to see Rick is pretty good too.

dkile..........the Wharton Hotel would be in my top 10 too , "Do your sportin in Wharton" good one , that place reminds me alot of Cold Springs in that you can fish right there if you want , saw the most intense mayfly hatch in my 50 years of doin it on the east branch of the first fork of the Sinemahoning (sp?) right above the place , they were what i'd call Hendricksons , the fish were everywhere rising , the fellow who had the most luck was using an old Lady Beaverkill with the yellow egg sack at the tail , many of the flies in the air were visibly female. I fished the same stretch that morning and only caught a couple and only saw a few , but by the afternoon , after a nice greasy burger and fries lunch at the Hotel , the same stretch had hundreds of rising fish and once that fella got us straightened out on the pattern we did it up right......thanks for bringin back those memories.

I always liked the Hotel Mannor in Slate Run back when Jim & Alice owned it. I have not been there since it was rebuilt after the fire. Had some good times there.
